It all started with the Love Boutique. And if you think I’m joking, sadly I am not.
One of Mr. Right’s companies reclaims brown fields, which are usually abandoned factories. The buildings are torn down, and the land is decontaminated and put to a new use. I said the brown fields are usually factories. The key word here is usually. Why? Because one of the buildings was a former, (and I can’t even believe I am using these words on our family-oriented, G-rated blog) a strip club. I know….. And its name was the Love Boutique. That’s correct………the Love Boutique. (Couldn’t they have been a little more creative?????????)
So anyway, I told the mister that he had to save the letters for me because I was sure I could do something with them and sell the rest on Craigslist. He did it, but let’s just say he wasn’t a happy camper. Then I had to figure out what I would actually do with the letters, and it had to be fast. You see, they were stacked up in our designer garage, and it is not place for clutter, at least according to him. I knew I could make the word butt, or tub or love, or boo, or live. That’s it. I could make the word live, and when I was tired of living, I could turn it into love.
Then I needed to figure out where I would do this living and loving. Of course, the basement bathroom would be perfect. We added it when we did our whole-house remodel before we moved in, and it is a blank/white/boring canvas. So, I hung them on the wall, and it is still a blank/white/boring canvas, but it is ready to LIVE. Now, I need to decide what else to do, and I am TOTALLY open for suggestions. So, all of you out there in blogland with your creativeness, please send your ideas my way. I am very serious.
Oh, and if you are wondering what happened to these babies, well, not one person responded to the craigslist ad, so I took them to Goodwill. And yes, that is a set of legs on the letter “e”.
